Man crushed to death by vehicle of Indian army in Kashmir

On 9th March, an elderly man was killed after being crushed to death by an Indian armed forces’ vehicle in Gulshan Chowk area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.

According to locals, the vehicle deliberately trampled the elderly man. The vehicle was not moving when the elderly man began crossing the road, at which point the vehicle began moving towards the man, crushing him and causing an on-spot death. 

The victim has been identified as Habibullah Shergojri. 

This is not the first time Indian army’s vehicles have murdered Kashmiris in this manner. In April, 2019, a thirteen-year-old boy was crushed to death by an Indian army vehicle in the Poonch district of the occupied region. 

In 2018, similarly, a civilian named Qaiser Amin Bhat was killed after he was run over by a paramilitary vehicle during a peaceful protest. The Indian security personnel drove an armored vehicle wildly into a crowd of protesters in Srinagar, slamming into a half-dozen people and crushing Qaiser beneath its wheels, leaving him with fatal injuries. The Indian army did not stop there but went on to fire shotgun pellets and tear gas at hundreds of mourners during a funeral march for the deceased Qaiser.
